Writing

INTENT: We aim to teach children the life skill of written communication so that they leave us with:
       • The ability to write fluently and with interesting detail on a number of topics

 

       • A vivid imagination which makes readers engage with and enjoy their writing

 

       • A highly developed vocabulary and an excellent knowledge of writing techniques to extend details or description

 

       • Well-organised and structured writing, which includes a variety of sentence structures

 

       • Excellent transcription skills that ensure their writing is well presented and punctuated, spelled correctly and neat

 

       • A love of writing and an appreciation of its educational, cultural and entertainment values

READING AND WRITING DEEP DIVES: OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2019

 

As a result of our deep dives into reading and writing during autumn 2019, we as a staff have agreed to make explicit in each unit of work: 

 

  • The title of the book/text being studied
  • Is it fiction or non- fiction?
  • The purpose of the text (to entertain, to inform, to discuss, to persuade)
  • The audience  the text is intended for
  • Technical vocabulary (VocAPPulary)
  • A specific spelling investigation
  • The punctuation/grammar being taught
  • A balance of reading and writing objectives taken from the targets in books
  • A written piece of work that demonstrates learning in all the above
  • Some aspect of the work edited improved.
